AJRC seminar series

The AJRC Seminar Series will restart in Semester 2, beginning on the 15th August. Seminars are held from 12:00-1:00 in Seminar Room 3, The Crawford School of Public Policy, J.G. Crawford Building no. 132, Lennox Crossing, Acton. A light lunch will be provided.

The AJRC Seminar Series is a forum for researchers to engage on issues relevant to Japan. Topics include, but are not limited to, economics, international relations, politics, and national security. Seminars are typically very frank and early stage studies are most welcome.

The current schedule of speakers for the AJRC Seminar Series is:

Tuesday 15 August – TBA

Tuesday 10 October – Isao Ishida (Konan University, AJRC visiting fellow)

Tuesday 24 October – Shuhei Nishitateno (Kwansei Gakuin University, ANU visiting fellow)

A further seminar is being held in conjunction with the Japan Institute at 5pm on Thursday 3 August, with Associate Professor Hiromi Amemiya-Fujimoto (Toyama University) presenting on ‘Current Issues of Itai-itai Disease for Sustainable Society - From the Perspective of Commons’.

There will be a smaller number of seminars taking place this semester due to upcoming AJRC events such as the Japan Update and AJRC-HIAS Workshop.

The convenor of the series, Associate Professor Tatsuyoshi Okimoto, kindly invites researchers wishing to present as part of the series on the 15th of August, or another preferred Tuesday, to be in contact via email (tatsuyoshi.okimoto@anu.edu.au).
